Only had a limited menu for Easter. Very bland and very overpriced!! $18 for a bowl of pasta with tomatoes and onions. Not flavor. Nice singer outside. Server was very good. Food was just very disappointing.

Like nearly every place in New Bern, the proprietors here seem to feel their place is golden. It was not bad, food was better than service, but you can drive to Morehead City/Beaufort and get equal or better food at lower prices.

There were no decorations, no candles on the table, and we were in a dark cold room. The waitress was surly. The food was absolutely awful. All of it came out cold. The stuffing was made of large croutons. The turkey was dry and we...More

Having eaten at Circa 1810 since it changed hands and been pleased we made reservations for Thanksgiving dinner to share with family. So we arrive and, as always a very pleasant greeting. We are seated at a dressed table with water already poured, no bread,...More

I am almost certain that reservations are required since someone has to be there to let you in and the people who own it also own other businesses in the area.
